Default Oh no, another Floridian...no Two!

Very glad to have found this forum. My wife, Laura, and myself, Joe are new to camping, RV's, and Class B's. We recently purchased a 2007 Roadtrek 190 Popular. Our choice had a lot to do with the fact that we plan to tow our small aircraft with us, so we won't have the ability to have a Toad. So much to learn and this looks like a very good resource. We have journeyed to our side yard so far and the trip was a success. We're hoping to visit Lake Griffin State in the near future as our first real shake down. Stand by for the HELP posts.

Welcome to the forum GyroJoe!

The Roadtrek 190 Popular should serve you well.

Thanks, but I just remember the position I was in when I joined (not that long ago). Knew very little about my rv and yet found so many on this forum willing to help. Just want others to feel as welcomed as I was.

I had the same problem as many others new rv owners. All local dealers were expensive. Many were either backed up for months or lairs and crooks. I had a $350 run-in with the latter and decided I could do it better and cheaper myself. Have been gratified what I've been able to do with my meager skills, the advice on this forum, and youtube of course.

Aw, I thought you really meant "Greater". I was humbled you thought of me that way, but now I'm even more humbled to discover it was only a spelling error.

Enjoy your 190. We had a 2007 Popular 190 for 10 years great class B. You don't happen to have mine which I traded in for a 2017 RT CS.

No steve. Actually mine is a versatile, but I could not find how to edit a post. I bought it from the original owners.

I have a 2008 Versatile that I purchase 3 years-ago. Nice to have resources to learn about our rigs. It can feel overwhelming at first.

Default Welcome GyroJoe

We too own a 2007 210V. We bought ours from the original owner in 2010 with 5500 miles on it and now have about 135,000 miles on it so we enjoy using it! So far it has been in all of the lower 48 states, many particularly across the south to California, multiple times. We live in the Gainesville, FL area having recently moved here from New Smyrna Beach, FL.

Default Towing your plane behind a Roadtrek 199

My wife and I have been towing a Kitfox two seat plane inside an enclosed trailer coast to coast annually for over a decade - leaving the plane in the trailer at local airports and touring by Roadtrek like most of us do - then flying out of those local airports in the most scenic destinations when the skies are blue and flying is spectacular.

We have homes in the Florida Keys and Chesapeake Bay regions and have owned lots of fast planes but flying down low and slow in calm air, all around beautiful destinations with the doors off is incredible fun.

You will love it !

"....but flying down low and slow in calm air, all around beautiful destinations with the doors off is incredible fun."

Yes, 48 us states, 6 Canadian provinces, Baja and without any doors. Minivan, not a B - B later.

No, I placed it where the third seat and drawer were with an 05/04 190P. The wing folded was placed next to the toilet/shower on the back seat/bed. Lots of pieces parts, tools to stay in the air, as I was addicted prior to the B. That ended about 6 years ago, darn it, but no complaints about my physical life.
